Week Thirteen In Review

Week Thirteen of the NFL season is complete and was generally an uneventful one for snappers. Kickers continue to miss extra points, but snaps have rarely played a role in the misses. Special recognition goes out to Joe Cardona (Patriots) and Reid Ferguson (Bills), who both snapped well on Monday Night Football in adverse conditions including wind and snow.

COVID issues continue to impact the position. Carson Tinker filled in for Trent Sieg of the Raiders this week. Sieg had a 56 game consecutive snapping streak end for the Raiders. If Sieg can return this week, Tinker could be back in Tampa Bay after Zach Triner was placed on the COVID list yesterday. It is also unclear if Charley Hughlett will be available to the Browns this week after being placed on the COVID list last week.

The only injured snapper that is eligible to return this season, Aaron Brewer of the Cardinals, may be back this week as Beau Brinkley has struggled in his absence. The Cardinals also released Kyle Nelson, who injured during his first practice after originally being signed to replace Brewer.

Cardona and Camaron Cheeseman (Washington) continue to lead the AFC and NFC respectively in Pro Bowl voting for snappers. As of December 1st, Cardona has 51,351 votes while Cheeseman has 42,033.

Two tackles recorded tackles in punt coverage this week, with Nick Moore (Ravens) making a solo tackle and Tinker adding an assisted tackle in his Vegas debut.
